What’s a Sheulogy?
sheu·lo·gy /ˈsho͞oləjē/ A speech or piece of writing that memorializes a favorite pair of worn out shoes.
True stories about life and the shoes we walk in.
Shoe Love is real & so are You
Welcome to sheulogy.com, a writer’s gallery and global community of shoe lovers who connect in meaningful ways through walk-a-mile-in-my-shoes storytelling about life’s journey.
To promote empathy and understanding for different experiences and points of view (something we think the world really needs right now).
Create meaningful connections online and offline. Follow the blog, connect through social media, and (after we grow a bit) we plan to also host in-person Sheulogy Symposiums.
Be inspired and entertained by the true stories of others, and maybe even share your own.
Share your legacy or personal brand through storytelling. Submit a sheulogy today for increased visibility, influence, or simply for the pleasure of sharing.

We all have a story
A sheulogy conveys simple elegant truths, giving us a glimpse into the unique journey of an individual, and their shoes.
where our paths cross
Our hearts expand when we open to the experiences of others and see our shared humanity.
Shoes help get us where we want to go, in style, and we love them for it.
